The Spoken Discourse Research Studio (SDRS) aims at the study of language in actual context. Our primary focus is to identify, document, and/or theorize linguistic knowledge through the examination of everyday talk. We record actual speech along with non-verbal aspects, create transcripts, and analyze data qualitatively and quantitatively. We host various activities, including theme-focused workshops, inviting specialists internationally, and regular research meetings. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more about our lab and its activities.
Research activities for SDRS have been supported by generous funding from the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI), the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC), the Japan Foundation, the Hakuho Foundation, and the University of Alberta.
